    New Top-Brand Gear From An Authorized US Dealer

    You get top-brand gear, new from the factory, from an authorized US dealer. Our products are shipped from the vendor to our warehouse, and then from the warehouse to you. There is no detour through a retail store, where the boxes are opened, the products put on display, and then sold as leftovers. When you shop online, make sure you are comparing new gear from authorized US dealers. 

    Special Opportunities: When It's Not New, We Tell You

    We occasionally have opportunities to buy B-stock merchandise to offer at special discounts. We also sometimes get returns in less than perfect condition. Sometimes we will offer these products to you - but we always identify it clearly as such using the classifications below. So unless it says otherwise, it's new from the factory.

    Important Guarantee: Your 100% Satisfaction

    Regardless of the condition described on our site, what you should remember is that if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase you may return it (though exceptions apply for some products). Of course, if you know you will only be happy if a product is 100% cosmetically perfect, then you shouldn't order B-Stock or Blemished merchandise - it's just not a good gamble. And if you will only be happy if a product has never been touched by another human, well then the Resealed products aren't a good choice for you. But if you are looking for even more impressive values than our already-low prices, then these options will be very attractive when available.

    These are our best descriptions of the quality and condition of this merchandise. Because of the highly efficient, automated nature of our warehouse, and the high volume of products we stock and ship, there is no way for us to provide any additional detail on the condition of any individual item. Just remember our 100% satisfaction guarantee!

    Product Description


    The Taylor 214ce-K acoustic-electric guitar brings together beautiful Hawaiian koa and Sitka spruce into Taylor's much-beloved Grand Auditorium body shape. The sound is bold yet balanced -- and sounds equally great through its onboard Expression System 2 pickup system. Its thick body has a voice with excellent range and throw. The 214ce-K model also features a distinctive Venetian-style cutaway. If you're considering a Taylor 214ce guitar and want an instrument that stands a bit apart from the rest, the Koa edition is a great choice.

    Hawaiian Koa Wood: Functional Art

    The beautiful and complex grain of the layered Hawaiian koa on the 214ce-K's back and sides yields an aesthetic that is both organic and exotic. The light finish brings out the natural beauty of the wood and shines dramatically under the stage lights. Each guitar in the Taylor Koa series was designed by Bob Taylor to be "a functional piece of art," and his craftsmanship is unquestionably the product of a great artisan.

    Ready For The Grandest Auditoriums

    The body on the Taylor 214ce-K is a full-size Grand Auditorium style. This is Taylor's most popular body shape, combining the 4.625-inch depth of a Dreadnought and the slightly deeper side curves of a Grand Concert. Combining elements from these two styles, the Grand Auditorium body proves equally versatile to strumming and fingerpicking styles. It has a warm but unobtrusive low end, balanced perfectly to its super clear midrange. The 214ce-K is 16 inches across at its widest point with a 25.5-inch scale neck length.

    Let's You Get Up There

    The "C" in the 214ce-K's name refers to the quasi-Venetian-style cutaway in the body. Unique to Taylor's 200 series, the cutaway allows comfortable access to at least the 17th fret.

    Custom Onboard Electronics

    Taylor's Expression System 2 pickup is a totally proprietary Taylor design -- not to be confused with Taylor's original ES system designed with Rupert Neve. The Expression System 2 on this instrument is result of extensive development on Taylor's own behalf, and an audibly successful innovation in acoustic pickup design. It is a single-source piezo transducer located under the saddle. The Expression System 2 pickup has a true powered preamp with active controls, and includes highly musical Bass and Treble EQ knobs, as well a master Volume control. The amplifier also has a Phase switch, accessible via the soundhole, to give you more control over feedback occurring between monitors and amps. The Phase switch can also be used simply to achieve a different tone.
